Over 21,153 socialist militants were elected in this political exercise to compete for the different public offices, which Venezuelans will finally decide on November 21 subnational elections.
On Monday, PSUV delivered its pre-candidates list to the National Electoral Council (CNE), which will supervise the entire electoral procedure.
In this regard, President Nicolas Maduro stressed that the nomination process of PSUV candidates was carried out with discipline.
“The Socialist party guarantees the leadership of the Venezuelan people, which is the strength of the Bolivian Revolution”, he stressed.
So far, for the upcoming elections, 183,806 candidates have been nominated, 103,042 of whom are women and 80,764 are men.
